“The modern ecological paradigm assigns the solution of environmental problems to a change of worldview: from anthropocentric to ecocentric. Changing this worldview is the main one, which is the main way of transforming scientific research, which should be aimed at reducing anthropogenic impact.
The IDEPS GmbH company has defined the main goal for itself – the creation of solutions that allow to achieve significant progress in matters of greening industrial production. Our innovation helps to reduce the pressure on the environment and increase the efficiency of the use of secondary resources.
Our team of like-minded people is expanding its ranks, attracting the best scientists who are close to our philosophy and who are able to make this world greener, which means better!”

“As a fashion brand, we challenge ourselves every day to minimize our negative impact and adapt best practices in a supply chain that comes with a lot of complexity.

Today we source 45% of our forest-based fibres originating from responsibly managed and certified forests, and by being part of the CanopyStyle Initiative we now commit to progressively source 100% of our forest-based fibres from top ranked producers by 2022, visible in stores by 2025.” – Jelle de Jong, Scotch & Soda Sustainability Director
